Goodreads Synopsis: Independence, Missouri, 1846
Koda is a bay quarter horse with a white blaze. He loves to explore the countryside and run free with his human friend Jasmine nearby. But after Koda sets out with Jasmine’s family on a long and dusty wagon train journey on the Oregon Trail, he finds out what is truly important to him. Here is Koda’s story . . . in his own words.
With moving and knowledgeable text and lovely black-and-white art throughout—both by real horse people—this is the perfect fit for all lovers of horses and history!
- I'm trying to catch up to Gnome on this series. She is way ahead of me. It is fun see how excited she gets when I start reading one of these books though. I understand the feeling!
- This was super cute just like the previous two books.
- The relationship between Jasmine and Koda is SO heartwarming. I just love their mutual love and care for one another.
- I love that the story is told from the horse's perspective. Some books cannot pull that off, but these books do a wonderful job.
- I also love that these books give kids a little piece of history in a fun way. The story doesn't go into depth about anything, but you get a feel for the time period, what was happening, and the customs.
